A couple weeks ago, Leslie Jones, star of the new Ghostbusters remake, said that she was having a hard time finding fashion designers who wanted to dress her.

After Jones went public about the difficulty finding designers who wanted to make clothes for non-sample size women–even for a major Hollywood premiere–Christian Siriano reached out over Twitter. Siriano is a graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts who you may remember from the fourth season of Project Runway, which he won.

The two met up later that week, and Siriano ended up putting Jones in a gorgeous, floor-sweeping red dress for the premiere. The consensus was that she looked amazing.

“I’ve been doing this for a long time, dressing different women of all different sizes,” Siriano told Yahoo. “Finally people are [starting to] notice.”
